Dear all ,


We have been Paying the TDS for the salaries paid to employees, & the same has been filed for the past quarters.

But while paying the TDS , I saw Education cess, Surcharge & interest apart from penalty.

For the past 2 quarters we paid the tax , but never added Educ cess , surcharge & interest.

Can you please share the percentage at which Education cess , surcharge & interest is to be calculated for the FY 15- 16 , AY - 16 - 17

And are all the above taxes mandatory ? will it implicate on us for not paying it for past 2 quarters? ( it was due to lack of information)


Thanks in advance
